College classmate claims Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at party

White House and Kavanaugh deny allegation made by second woman

That declaration, remarkable for a nominee to the nation's highest court, came as Republicans embraced their newly aggressive stance and Kavanaugh's prospects dangled precariously.

McConnell's speech came as the controversy over Kavanaugh's confirmation took another twist when a new accusation landed late Sunday in a report from The New Yorker.

Mr Trump, himself accused during the 2016 presidential race of sexual misconduct with numerous women, twice offered words of support for Mr Kavanaugh while in NY to attend the UN General Assembly. The Democratic Party has called for the vote to be postponed till the allegations of assault are investigated. Schumer accused the Republicans of "a rush job to avoid the truth".

Kavanaugh, a judicial conservative and Trump's second Supreme Court pick, was nominated to fill the vacancy created by Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement.

Dianne Feinstein, sent a letter to Trump on Sunday saying the Federal Bureau of Investigation has more than enough time to investigate before Ford and Kavanaugh testify on Thursday.

In the letter, Kavanaugh strongly denies the allegations of sexual assault and accuses Democrats of "grotesque and obvious character assassination" that would dissuade qualified people of entering public service in the future.

"Kavanaugh now claims he couldn't have assaulted Dr. Christine Blasey Ford because he was a virgin during high school and college", Deadline tweeted. "I've led a good life".

He said he "did not have sexual intercourse or anything close to sexual intercourse in high school or for many years thereafter".

He said that he "will not be intimidated into withdrawing from this process", adding: "The coordinated effort to destroy my good name will not drive me out".

Conway said, "I don't think one man's shoulders should bear decades of the #MeToo movement" that has toppled powerful men across industries over the a year ago. The New Yorker reported Sunday that Deborah Ramirez, 53, claims Kavanaugh exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party during his freshman year at Yale. She also demanded Kavanaugh testify before her at any Senate hearing.

Mr Kavanaugh's nomination hangs precariously, with a handful of senators in both parties undecided on his nomination.

"The Republicans need to stop aiding and abetting Chuck Schumer's extreme delay strategy", said Penny Nance, the chief executive of Concerned Women for America, a conservative group, referring to the top Senate Democrat. For Trump, the hearing is dangerously unpredictable, carrying the potential to tarnish not only Kavanaugh but also the Republican Party itself weeks before the election. Aides to several Senate Republicans working closely on the Kavanaugh nomination said they were caught off guard by the allegation detailed in the New Yorker.

With Senate Republicans holding only a 51-49 majority, Sen. His nomination and the claims of sexual misconduct have stirred up women and liberal voters whose antipathy to Republicans has already been heightened by Trump's policies and his own fraught history of alleged sexual transgressions.

With emotions running high, dozens of protesters were removed from the US Capitol for unlawfully demonstrating against the judge's confirmation. Many wore black "Be A Hero" shirts and chanted slogans including "We will not be silenced". Grassley released the letter on Monday, along with a letter from Kavanaugh himself in which he flatly denies Ford's allegations.

Both Ford and Ramirez want the FBI to investigate.

Ramirez, who went to Yale University with Kavanaugh, alleges that he waved his penis in her face against her will.

Kavanaugh cited his "lifelong record of promoting dignity and equality for women starting with the women who knew me when I was 14 years old" and insisted that he never had sex throughout college and for "many years after".

"We reached out to former Boulder District Attorney Stan Garnett, who then met with Ms. Ramirez to work through how to analyze and present her allegations", Beckham said. A sign on her front door indicated she would have no comment.

Kavanaugh said President Trump called him Monday afternoon to tell him he's standing by him.

Also jumping into the fray was the attorney who represents porn actress Stormy Daniels in her legal fight with Trump.
